Ctrl + Shift + Del Doesn’t Work

“Captivity does things to you. It shows you how base an animal you can be. How you’d do anything to stay alive and suffer a little bit less than the day before.” One of my initial thoughts after finishing the book, and a subtext to the whole relevance of the plot, was how big of … Continue reading

It Is Happening Again

“He stopped once I pulled out my tape recorder and asked about the murders. Then it was those whirling wheels that had his full attention. People got such a charge from seeing their names in print. Proof of existence. I could picture a squabble of ghosts ripping through piles of newspapers. Pointing at a name … Continue reading
